Support Your Favorite Annapolis Small Business With a Patch Shout-Out

In honor of Small Business Saturday today, you can help drive feet — and wallets — to your favorite independent business.

You might be the type who finds sleeping on a freezing sidewalk for the best Black Friday deals exciting. Or perhaps you've already started working out your mouse-clicking finger for Cyber Monday. But if neither scenario appeals to you, there is an alternative — Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday, conceived by American Express to help spotlight the efforts of local small businesses, comes at the beginning of the big holiday shopping sprint — this Saturday — and encourages shoppers not to bypass Main Street for the mega-mall.

Historic Annapolis Patch would love to hear which small businesses you can't live without in Annapolis. Tell us in the comments which independently owned business is a must for shoppers this Saturday and why. Your shout-out could help a sector of our economy that has created 65 percent of the net new jobs over the last 17 years.

So when you are looking for a great pair of earrings, discover that perfect bottle of wine or have a craving for an amazing sandwich, where do you go time and time again?
